*NOW CLOSED* Invitation to Tender – Great North Fen



Discover Brightwater is currently funded to deliver a minimum of approximately 43 ha of restored or created wetland habitat and habitat improvements to 9.5 km of the River Skerne. We are also charged with establishing the Great North Fen as a legacy project. The Great North Fen will be a patchwork of approximately 400 ha of connected restored in-river, ponds, fens and carrs habitats surrounding the River Skerne.
